Our newly launched library service is designed to simplify the search process, maximise efficiency, enhance results and make sure that librarians and library users can get their hands on newly published content as it’s released.

At its core, JournalClick automates the work of finding relevant research and sends content directly to libraries and their users. While manual searching is incredibly valuable JournalClick’s ability to push relevant articles as they are published is set to help searchers save a huge amount of time as well as ensure that they have access to all the latest content at their fingertips.

JournalClick founder Dan Almour says, “Navigating the world of open access information can be complex and time consuming, particularly when carried out in a library related context. Our newly launched library service is designed to simplify the search process, maximize efficiency, enhance results and make sure that librarians and library users can get their hands on newly published content as it’s released.”

For librarians the new module offers an array of benefits. Staff enjoy the flexibility to create custom built organizational dashboards which issue a daily inventory of relevant new articles. Librarians can then keep an inventory of research articles, view a summary of new daily content and send these to users as they please. Libraries wishing to fine-tune their article searching strategy can also sign up for JournalClick’s frequent alerts service. This innovative feature actively issues alerts when relevant articles are published and ensures that both libraries and their users receive up-to-the-minute information on pre-specified key requirements.

Another key benefit of the library module is the platform’s ultra-intuitive suggestion function. Just like popular shopping websites such as Amazon, this feature actively notes what content is being viewed and offers library users tailor made suggestions based on what other users have previously surveyed. The dynamic community based approach is designed to guide researchers on a unique ‘learning path’ which enriches the scope of search results and shaves hours off time spent locating relevant content.

Users are also set to enjoy the benefits of JournalClick’s all-new library specific module. The ability to set up a personalized dashboard allows users to receive automatic updates on new research articles as soon as they hit Open Access world. Users can also reap the time saving and content enriching benefits of the built in suggestion algorithm. Depending on individual preferences results can be filtered to include a broad or specific range of articles.

Since its launch in mid-March JournalClick has emerged as the go-to site for researchers wanting to slash search times and deepen results. Plain and simple, its intelligent community based approach to the search process has revolutionized the way open access information is explored. Already users enjoy access to almost 2.8 million articles, with more content added every day.

Libraries can currently choose to sign up for a free or paid service depending on their individual needs.
